comment Has test driven development (TDD) actually benefited a real world project?
I bought into this logic months ago. I love the idea behind TDD, I'm just finding the reality of it a bit disconcerting. Also, I notice that even here, there are no actual examples where inheriting a TDD based project has paid off. Have you actually gone back to an old code base that had a bunch of unit tests and it paid off.

Agreed, but I lack the reputation to down vote. This is just the "TDD gives better results" with no example of a TDD derived project in maintenance to back it up answer that I wanted to avoid.

At first, I thought tests would be great for knowing where bugs were not, but I quickly learned, as @Hakan pointed out in the Uncle Bob article, generally it comes up because you missed a test case. Which makes those tests pretty useless. In fact, that article makes the point that Incremental Development is what works.
